I have had a chance to experience the food trend that has already swept Europe. Will it sweep up Toronto too?
On a beautiful Friday, with temperatures way above seasonal, I ventured to Kensington Market to get a taste of a Doner. Kensington Market is a storied neighbourhood in Toronto with off-beat shops, artist charm and grime, storied locations (Twitch City anyone) more than a few marijuana dispensaries, and lots of food.
Toronto has lots of food. We are fortunate enough to have access to a world menu; sometimes authentic, sometimes adapted to the Torontonian palate (I am talking to you Sushi Pizza). If you want it you can come and get it.
My German and Swiss students have been talking about Doner for years. I decided to Google it and found one in the city. Luckily I was off early on Friday. The weather was great and I decided to go and have one and a couple of beers. Apparently the price in German is only a couple of Euro, but here it was around 10 dollars.
I think the pictures say it all. It was so delicious that I
might have to will become a regular customer.
